    Why? Someone please tell me what on earth the appeal is? I'd rather drink the shower water after all of MacRumors has peed in it.

    Anyone who admits to liking it — or even worse, taping or Tivoing it — in this thread or any other, earns an instant ban for the duration of entirely my choosing.

    I watch X Factor :eek:

    Although more :eek:ingly I watch Americas Next Top Model and actually have a Sky+ series link set up for it :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    I do dislike Strictly though.

    A coworker of mine is a DwtS nut...watches it live, tivos it, tells me or others in the office about it the next day. At the beginning of each season, she's usually asking me who all the athletes are and what position they played, etc. I've seen the show a handful of times, but don't really care for it.

    Cmon, folks, you know you watch it. I watch Dancing with the Stars with the family. It's one of the few shows you can watch with kids any more. It's fine, harmless entertainment. Ban me if you want, BV.

    I watch it for the fashion pointers.

    The TV companies make these shows (and others like it, like The X Factor et al) because they're a cash cow. How much money do you reckon they make from all the idiots who phone in to vote for Roly off Grange Hill or whoever they've dredged up for the latest series?*

    It's cheap TV and they rake the cash in from it – even more so for the music-based ones where there's a product on the shelves at the end of the series.

    *Please don't call after lines have closed – your vote won't count and you may still be charged.

    I love the way that the make it sound like you might not get charged. It's got to be something like a 99.9999% chance you'll get charged.

    You vote for Roly won't count though.

    Sometimes I watch the auditions for X Factor (or whatever it's called), sometimes I watch whats going on in I'm a Celebrity. I always watch the first episode of BB to see who's going to be dominating the newspapers for the next couple of months.

    I've never seen Strictly Come Dancing. Ever. It's the same for my friends and family. Who on earth actually does watch it?

    Family programming!?! How did you explain to the kids that a former porn star won? I guess they failed to mention on the show where she got her moves from!:D
